Fiction. "Just as the central text of the Kabbalah is unafraid to work through questions as elemental as cannibalism, ARC: CLEAVAGE OF GHOSTS becomes the central novel of the new confrontation with mysticism by a writer who is a direct heir of Kafka and Singer. Even more of a poet than his predecessors, Noam Mor conjures the voice and narration of the soul like a contemporary Paul Celan. It's virtually impossible to describe his work without invoking the company of writers sorely missed. His multifaceted talent limns the interior life of the human body as though Dostoevsky had returned from underground. The depths of humor and sexuality are noted effortlessly and dreamlike, as if David Lynch were given ten years to film Notes from the Underground" - David Rosenberg.
